Yes, you read that correctly: Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Pizza. On this beautiful weekend we made one of our favorites: Grilled Pizza. Instead of our usual toppings, we switched it up a bit and went Mediterranean. Just look at this beautiful concoction!
Don’t be intimidated by the thought of grilling pizza. It really is easy (and quicker than cooking it in your oven). You can grill pretty much any pizza. Frozen pizza, pre-baked crusts and fresh dough all work. Our family favorite is to make dough from scratch. It takes a bit of time, but this wonderful dough recipe from Annie’s Eats can be made the day of or made ahead and frozen for a quick meal. We have tried many different recipes, and this is by far, our favorite. I do usually add in some dried or fresh herbs. Basil, chives, parsley and oregano all make a wonderfully flavored crust.
To make our crust, we started with pesto rather than a red sauce. Then topped it with tomato basil marinated chicken breasts, red peppers, green onions, black olives, mushrooms, fresh basil, feta and mozzerella cheese. To say that this pizza was delicious is an understatement. The crust recipe makes enough for two pizzas and my family eats 1 pizza at a meal. So we were all looking forward to leftovers the next day.
